For a Breath of Ecstasy: 3. Who Gave My Soul to MeMichael John Trotta - Galaxy Music Corporation
After a calm start in this fourth movement from For a Breath of Ecstasy, a rhythmic motive begins in the bass clef of the accompaniment and intensifies as the singers enter with the first statement of the text. There is an instrumental interlude, a recap of the entire text, and a coda. The choral writing is approachable, often beginning in unison, moving to two part and then to four parts for the last phrase and cadence. Oboe part included.
